I hold a PhD in Sociology from City, University of London where I specialised in health and HIV/AIDS. My PhD was on the vulnerability and risk to HIV infection in Uganda.

I examined the influence of social factors on vulnerability and risk of HIV infection in Uganda. Specifically, the research examined the influence of socio-economic status, sexual and gender-based violence, and connected social and structural factors.

I am a mixed-methods researcher but with expertise in quantitative methods including multilevel modelling of demographic and health survey data from Sub-Saharan Africa.  

My research interests are broadly in understanding the relationship between health and society, applied health research and in implementation science.

My specific research interests are in HIV/AIDS; health service research; social statistics; and social epidemiology.

I welcome enquiries on potential PhD research projects on these and related research areas.

I became a Fellow of Advance HE (formally the Higher Education Academy) in March 2020.
I hold an MA in Sociology and a BA in Social Science both from Makerere University, Uganda.

I have nearly 20 years of combined experience in research, programme and organisational management in the context of HIV/AIDS and Sub Saharan Africa and teaching in the UK.
